Practical Tips For Naturally Brighter & Whiter Eyes


They’re the first thing you notice about someone when you meet them, and the last thing you remember when you walk away. It doesn’t matter if the person was six foot or four, was bald or had a thick head of hair, was in their early twenties or late eighties; if their eyes were clear and shining, they were a complete vision of ageless beauty. When was the last time, though, other than when watching a movie, you saw someone and just… Read more

Fix Digital Eye Strain Now to Keep Your Vision

Our eyes are the packhorses of the modern world. We work at computers all day long, stare at our phones in between, watch TV when we get home, and all the while they take the strain — literally. What I’m talking about is digital eye strain. One of the main problems of digital eye strain, also known as computer vision syndrome is that when using screens, we only blink around 5-10 times a minute — instead of the standard 15 times a minute. Because… Read more

Why Summer After Laser Eye Surgery is So Much Better

What comes to mind when you think of summer? The smell of freshly cut grass, the sound of waves crashing, afternoons spent barbecuing with the family or whole evenings outside drinking wine and chatting with friends? When you’re a glasses or contacts wearer, these images of summer are nothing more than idealistic fantasies. The reality is, your best time of the year is more likely consumed by fighting off allergies and eye problems and dealing with all the inconveniences that come with… Read more

Glasses, Contacts, Laser Eye Surgery: Which One Suits My Lifestyle Best?

You may think your glasses or contacts suit your lifestyle, but it’s more likely you’ve adapted your lifestyle to fit around them. When you decide to use corrective eyewear, you sign an invisible contract that puts certain limitations on what you can and can’t do. If you’ve lived most of your life under the constraints of one of these contracts, you may not even notice it anymore. Like working a 9-5 job, until you take a sabbatical, have a midlife crisis, or… Read more

Time for new sunglasses

Ever since I was four, and I was forced to wear the same blue navy sweater and same brown straight leg trousers as everyone else at school, I’ve despised being told what to wear. It’s not that I feel I should be able to express myself through my clothes, or even that I feel it’s an insult to my style. It’s just that generic, off-the-shelf clothing is so limited, ugly, and poorly designed that no one could ever really feel comfortable or… Read more

Getting rid of your glasses is one of them.

How to age gracefully (with Phil)

There comes a point in everyone’s life when they realise the inevitable truth of ageing. Even though it’s happening from the very moment we’re born, it can be decades until we have to face the fact — most of us pushing it away, for as long as possible. For Phillip Schofield, that time came at just sixteen years of age, when his hair started to turn grey. That was the start of Phillips’s rocky relationship with ageing. He’s since spoken out about… Read more

Top 5 coffee stops near us

Tea is the quintessential English beverage. Just like our favourite alcoholic tipple is beer and our most loved dish is the good traditional roast dinner. Or, at least, so you would have thought. Gin is actually the leading alcoholic drink of choice for Brits. Going by the quantity we eat, we much prefer the humble sandwich, over a Sunday roast. And when it comes to tea, well, although we invented the tea bag and are still up there with the Chinese and Turks… Read more

Looking after your eyes on the London tube

Take a ride on the London underground and you’re destined to see sights you won’t have seen anywhere else. Strange characters dressed up as mythical creatures and dominatrix on their way to work. Longtime commuters sprawled out with shoes off and feet up. Even couples celebrating the best day of their lives by getting married on their favourite line. The problem is, as an enclosed, poorly ventilated environment that’s also full of metal, the tube is one of the worst places for… Read more

Choosing sunglasses that really do protect your eyes

Factor 50 suntan lotion, check. Towels, check. Hats, SPF lip balm, 100 percent UV protected clothing and parasol, check, check, check. Oh, and plenty of water, hydration salts, a first aid kit, fruit, snacks, and last but not least, a pair of high-quality sunglasses. We associate all these things with a holiday abroad and a long, sizzling day at the beach. But really, many of them — okay, maybe not the parasol —  should make an appearance on even cloudy days in London.… Read more
